Here Are Male Fashion Trends That Women Hate

Posted by Sughra Hafeez in Fashion On 18th June 2017

Men’s fashion doesn’t change nearly as often, or as drastically as women’s. The variations in men’s clothing through the decades are as subtle as the width of their necktie or the pattern of their shirt, but basics like jeans, t-shirts and suits have been the standard for a long time. These trends, specifically, are the top ones men should veer away from if their goal is to impress the ladies.


#1 Bushy beards

Some time in the 1940s-1950s, we all collectively agreed as a species to leave behind the trend of bushy beards along with top hats and high infant mortality rates. Let’s leave bushy beards in that faraway past, where they belong.

No woman wants to kiss a guy with a beard that holds half of the food you ate on the day. Also, we really don’t want to search for your lips every time we go in for a kiss.


#2 Skinny jeans

First off, this is a health risk. I mean come on, do you want to jeopardise your chance of having babies with fashion? Even if you’re not into kids, you need to do away with this fashion trend.


#3 Socks and sandals.

Every guy knows this one’s bad. It has made every worst male fashion trends list. And yet, men are still trying to rock the socks and sandals combo. It’s like they want to repel us and, well, it’s working.

The only time you should wear this combination is when you’re a dad driving to the convenience store on a quick milk run. There’s no other scenario where wearing these is okay.


#4 Ill-fitting suits.

To be fair, this isn’t a gendered problem. Everyone—men and women—should learn to recoil at the sight of an ill-fitting suit.

It’s not like we expect you to buy a custom suit every time. You can buy a suit off-the-rack and have a tailor sew it in to fit you better at a low fee. It just takes some effort, guys.

A suit that fits properly can make all the difference in how the shape, height, and weight of your body look, so choose more wisely from now on.


#5 Vests

Someone, back in the 90s, decided to take the vest in a three-piece suit and apply it to casual fashion.

Unless you are a waiter, please stop wearing vests over T-shirts, buttoned up shirts or with nothing underneath.

The only people who should wear vests like this are boy bands from the 90s and 00s.


#6 Popped shirt collars.

Why? Do you want people to know you are a jerk? Because this is what you’re saying with that raised collar. Wear that shirt the way it was supposed to be worn.


#7 Wallet chains.

Let’s be completely honest with ourselves and admit that there is no functional or practical reason for wallet chains to exist. They’re only there to look clunky and be loud any time the person wearing it takes a step.


#8 Fleece.

We’ll admit that fleece is actually comfortable and a great fabric for the winter, but we won’t lie to ourselves about how bad it looks.

Fleece jackets have an age limit. When a guy’s age is in the double digits, fleece jackets should not be worn.


#9 Super Deep V-Neck Shirts.

But deep V-necks just look ill-fitting, kind of like you were just in a fight and your opponent grabbed you by the neck of your shirt, resulting in a dramatic stretch.

#10 Long shirts.

You have no camel toe. You’re not trying to pull the dress over pants trend. So, stop wearing really long T-shirts.


#11 Cowboy hats.

Stop wearing cowboy hats unless you’re a real-life cowboy.

You might think, “This would be such a cool accessory to my suit!” but please, don’t let that sudden wave of wistful thinking override your common sense.

#12 Tank tops.

Those tan lines they create are terrible. A tank top is too tight or weirdly-fitting, maybe stay away from it.


#13 Uggs

Men love to diss Uggs on women, but little is being done to combat the male Ugg-wearer. These shoes look like house slippers; as such, they should always be worn inside and nowhere else.

Ugg does make men’s shoes that simply look like traditional boots, but women agree that this suede, laceless, fur-lined style should stay far away from a man’s foot.

#14 Accessory overload

Just because you own every kind of accessory available to men it doesn’t mean you should wear them all at the same time.


#15 Flip flops.

If there’s no beach within a 100-metre radius then men should never EVER be seen in flip flops.

This list is just full of things that could also apply to women. Flip flops are one such item. No one should be walking around exposing their entire foot to the dirty ground. It’s just so unhygienic in so many ways.

#16 Leather pants.

Unless you’re Lenny Kravitz or Kanye West, you should probably stay away from this item of clothing. It’s really not worth the risk, especially during the summer.

The ultimate wrongness, “Leather trousers are to men’s fashion what Ugg Boots and pyjama bottoms are to womenswear – a 24ct no no.” Yes, even if you’re Brad Pitt.


#17 A Hairless Body

Although women may like a shaven face, men shouldn’t take their razor any lower than that if they’re trying to impress a girl. Removing all traces of body hair has become a trend in recent years, but not all women are getting behind it. Hairless chests and legs belong on little boys, not on full grown men, according to most women. A lot of athletes have to shave to cut down on resistance during races, but unless you’re headed to the Olympics, women prefer to see men au naturel.

#18 The Man Purse

Women don’t want to date a man whose Gucci bag costs more than her own and would rather a down-to-earth dude, who simply has a wallet and keys in his pocket.


#19 Brief Swim Trunks

Brief-style bathing suits are an alluring option for men who want to avoid pasty white thighs and feel a little more free during their swim. Just don’t expect to pick up chicks on the boardwalk, because women aren’t crazy about this beach look

#20 Shorts

A good pair of legs on a man is always appreciated by a woman, but that doesn’t mean she wants to see your thighs sticking to the seat next to her on the subway.
